The Industrial Polymers Handbook - Products, Processes, Applications - is a multi-volume compendium of technology that describes industrially important polymers, both naturally occurring and synthetic. The book is arranged in 3 main parts: Part 1 describes polymerization processes in detail and addresses trends in polymer reaction engineering, polymerization mechanisms and kinetics, and reactor modeling. Part 2 includes a comprehensive presentation of source-based and structure-based polymer nomenclature and covers descriptions of the syntheses and characteristics of the industrially important polymer classes, while Part 3 covers biopolymers and their derivatives. Internationally respected authors from both industry and academia in many of the world's major industrialized countries provide the complete picture, backed by top-quality illustrations, clear diagrams and charts, and the extensive use of tables - providing a unique level of detail. A keyword, author, and a CAS-registry-number index round off the contents of this handbook, making it an invaluable source of information for chemists, chemical engineers, patent attorneys, marketing specialists, and all those involved in today's polymer industry.
